> What do you see when you look at yourself in the mirror? At your neighbor? At our Other Brothers?  At your boss?

> More often than not when we look at those around us, we look through our own two selfish eyes; we view and judge people and their acts based off how they personally affect us. When we see a guy in a nice sports car that just cut you off and think what a rich jerk who thinks his life and where he needs to go is more important than mine.
> What do you think God sees when He looks at us and those around us?  What about that guy who cut us off? God saw a man who loves his wife so much and is rushing to the hospital to be with her before their baby is born, and even though he cut us off, He still loves him. Or what about that guy from the office who started that mean rumor about you? God loves him too.

> God sees each of us through eyes of unconditional love, and He loves everyone—it doesn’t matter what they do, where they work, how much money they have, how educated they are or what they look like.

> We need to do the same. We need to learn to see others as God sees them.  The best way to understand how to see as God sees is studying the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. He is our greatest example, and the only perfect example of how to live and see others as God does. He showed to charity to all men, and as I heard a preacher during his message reminded us, “Only when we see through Heavenly Father’s eyes can we be filled with ‘the pure love of Christ.’” We can follow in Christ’s footsteps and show charity to all men by studying His life, teachings and testimonies in the scriptures.

> In our daily prayers, we need to ask God to help us start seeing people as He sees them. Ask him to help us be more patient and loving with those around us. It’s a freeing feeling to take the focus off ourself and use God’s perspective to just see them and their situation rather than how it affects us.

> We need and should strive to be kinder, more loving and more forgiving. It’s easy to feel this way toward those we know and those who share the same traits and beliefs as us. But the second great commandment is to love your neighbor as you love yourself (Matthew 22:39); it doesn’t say to only love those who go to our same church or cheer on the same football team as us. We need and should show compassion to everyone we meet.  I encourage all of us to not focus on outward appearance.  The world focuses on things we can only physically see—what people wear, what ethnicity they are, how many worldly things they have, etc. God focuses on the inward. He sees people’s hearts, and their heart aches and pains.

> God looks for and sees the good in others, I hope and pray we all do the same today, tomorrow and always.

> I found the poem below I am using instead of a prayer, Dear God, give us your eyes so we can see. Give us your love for humanity. Give us your arms for the broken-hearted, the ones that are far beyond our reach. Give know us your heart for the ones forgotten. Give us your eyes so we can see all those that need us.  We ask all this in Your Holy and Precious Name  - AMEN.

December 28, 2020

Brother,

I hope and pray all is well with you and your family today and that you had a great Christmas.

"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” 
- Matthew 5:13,14

I hope and pray you had a joyful Christmas holiday and feel grateful for the blessings and even the hardships of the past year. Weirdly tucked into this long season is the phenomenon of commercialism and shopping that is supposed to get us in the mood for the season of giving. Following this giving tradition, we purchase or make small tokens of appreciation for those who have provided some service to us through the year—teachers, kids’ bus drivers, the letter carrier, different service people, as well as some neighbors. The gifts are always received with such happiness and delight.

Have you ever had the experience of carrying a gift for someone, but running into someone else who thinks the gift is his or hers? Someone mistakenly assumes the gift is his, reaches for it and expectantly asks, “Is this for me?” Then he begins thanking you profusely as you awkwardly place it in his arms because you don’t know what else to do. His face lights up, full of shocked glee, searching for something to give you in return, all because of miscommunication combined with the unwritten rules of relational etiquette.

I was struck by how a simple act of (unintended) kindness brought such happiness to one particular person. For a few minutes, that gift transformed the man’s day. Based on his reaction, it’s fair to say he was in desperate need of some attention and kindness. I know I have been on the receiving end of acts of kindness. In the weeks before Christmas, some of our vendors send unexpected gifts. Such a warm and loving feeling immediately ushers in hope and promise for that day and for the future. It really is so cool when unexpected blessings interrupt our days.

We all are beaten down by this world at times, making it hard to notice how God wants to work through us to touch others and address their needs. Sometimes though, God uses others to reach out to us through their actions. But if our head is down in self-pity, frustration, bitterness or resignation, we won’t see those people God is bringing into our life to impact us, nor will we see the person we can impact. Helping others and offering God’s gift of love and Jesus will impact them and us in amazing ways. So please don’t be afraid to reach out.

I encourage you today, think of one or two people whose lives you might change, even for a few minutes, by delivering some unexpected kindness. There are so many people around us who live in quiet desperation. I doubt you will have to look far. And if you take a moment to scratch the surface, you will see their need. Maybe one of them lives in your own home. I want you to shine God’s love on others. If we are struggling, look up and pay attention. God is reaching out to us. But we have to be looking for God’s grace and comfort in order to receive it. Look for the person(s) He puts in our life. We need to embrace the role of giving or receiving a gift with humble understanding of God’s majesty and not shy away.  We don't want to miss out on those awesome opportunities.

Lets pray, thank You, Father, for leading us to others who are in need of some kindness. We confess, Lord, that we sometimes focus on ourslves, our issues and our needs. Sometimes we let the events that don’t go our way distract us from understanding and seeing Your love in our life. Please Father guide us to those in need of love and attention. Let them see Your radiant light shining through us. Help us to appreciate Your wonderful servants who bring Your love, compassion and grace to us.  We pray all this in Your Holy and Precious Name - AMEN. 

Have a blessed and safe day and week.

STAY STRONG!

Brother please remember I am there for in thought, prayer and action - 24x7.

Love Your Brother and Friend in Christ,

Michael
